I cant seem to get the driver installed i followed all the instructions on the make was succesful and the make install was successful but i also used modprobe rt61 but when i use airmon-ng it says teh regular rt61 driver included with backtrack and injection doesnt work on that one injection only works with the serial monkey one which i cant get to work

Well, what's not working? Please provide more information. You can enable injection with "iwpriv wlan0 rfmontx 1", if that helps.

the backtrack 2 only detects the defualt driver and not the serial monkey driver even after i installed it properly and when i use airmon-ng it says rt61 not rt61pci like it should say its compiled and isntalled properly, is there anyway to remove the old default driver from backtrack and install the serial monkey one? i also use this commands to install the driver

tar xvfz rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz
cd rt61-cvs-*
cd Module

make install
modprobe rt61

You want rt61, not rt61pci, both drivers are from serialmonkey by the way ;). To remove a kernel module, use this command "modprobe -r rt61pci". To prevent its insertion, you can simply delete it, move it somewhere else, or blacklist it.

Have you enabled injection? "iwpriv wlan0 rfmontx 1"
